Top critical review
I'm here to tell it like it is...
April 27, 2018
I've read several reviews for these headphones, and I must say that they get a bad rap from people who overly exaggerate their reviews on both sides of the fence. And maybe that's because a lot of people don't have anything else to compare to saying they're fantastic, or they're expecting too much by putting these headphones on too high of a pedestal and call them trash. Who knows! Nevertheless, here's my contribution to the opinion pot to tell it like it is.. And so you have a point of reference, I'm comparing these to the first generation Beats by Dre Studio headphones. The E7's are not great, and they don't suck either. They are average because they have strong and weak points that seem to balance each other out. First off, they're priced great for what you get. The sound quality is "OK" enough for the average user, and the packaging and build quality is pretty decent. I definitely wouldn't recommend these to an audiophile because they just don't reproduce the richness and separation that they may be accustomed to.
*Bluetooth phone call clarity
*$$ PRICE $$
*Not as loud as I would want.
*The bass can be a little hollow and lack depth sometimes (still decent though).
*The highs are not as crisp and defined as they could be. (again, still decent).
*The mid-range seems to be the dominant sound which annoys me sometimes. A good EQ app helps tremendously with leveling out the sound frequencies.
Bottom line, I use these primarily for PlayStation and occasionally I use them for music. And maybe it's because I use them in that order why I have a pretty good experience. Keep in mind that they will not pair via Bluetooth to a PS4 because of Sony's bullcrap of not including A2DP support in the PS4. So I plug them into my PS4 controller with this cord right here. Great combo!:
If you're someone who needs a decent
pair of inexpensive headphones that look and sound good enough for a workout, gaming, watching TV, or any other environment where precise sound reproduction is not a key factor, then hands down, these are a go! Because like I said, the build and sound quality for the price is "decent" enough for those purposes. If you're some sort of a producer, or a Spotify or Tidal freak who listens to a lot of music like hip hop or anything that's heavy on bass and highs, then don't expect the Beats or Bose experience with these headphones because it's simply not there. Again, you get what you pay for. That's not to say that they're not good for music. I'm just saying that if you're real picky on how you want your music heard, then these may not be for you. So please, don't buy them and then talk crap about them later in a review because you were expecting champagne with a malt liquor budget. Those are the people who give these headphones a bad rap. And also please keep in mind that people's experiences will vary depending on the devices they connect to.
